Description
Eight color slides. The Gomez family live on the Miccosukee Reservation. Back strap weaving is a Mexican-Mayan tradition that involves a portable loom, allowing the weaver to work in any location. The Florida Folk Arts Survey was conducted in 1987 by folklorists Tina Bucuvalis, Steve Fragos, Merri Belland, and Barbara Seitz as preliminary research for a joint folk art between the Florida Folklife Program and the Florida Museum of History. The field researchers focused on those areas previously overlooked by FFP staff. The research focused on identifying folk artists and locating appropriate exhibit objects.

Date

Description
One proof with ten images, plus 5 color prints. A marimba is a type of xylophone played with a mallet. Master folk artists (and marimba players) Camposeco, Francisco and Mendez entered the apprenticeship program to teach the youth of the Mayan community of Indiantown to play the marimba. The two official apprentices were Miguel Marroquin and Valentí­n Xuncax, although a number of youth participated in the program. The Folk Arts Apprenticeship Program began in 1983 with a NEA grant of $22,000. The program provided an opportunity for master folk artists to share technical skills and cultural knowledge with apprentices in order to keep the tradition alive. Apprentices must have had some experience in the tradition and agreed to train for at least six months. The first project director was Blanton Owen, later replaced by folklorist Peter Roller. The program was continued each year through 2003.
